Ballia (UP):

Hitting back at Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said not doing any work is the Prime Minister’s biggest “karnama” (misdeed).

“Modiji spoke about our ‘karnama’ but did not give any account of his work. He is shying away from debate on development. Actually, doing nothing is his biggest karnama,” he said.

Yadav’s retort came against the backdrop of Modi’s comment that in Uttar Pradesh “karname boltey hain” (misdeeds speak out loud).

On the charge of discrimination regarding power supply in Uttar Pradesh, the Chief Minister said, “Modi did not swear by the river Ganga on the issue which means he has no ground of what he spoke.”
